Noted Politicial Scientist Tells Rotarians About 4th CD

Gary L. Rose has made a career in politics –- studying, observing, and opining on the subject, especially Connecticut politics and those of the 4th Congressional District, which includes Westport. Today the chairman of the Department of Government and Politics at Sacred Heart University told the Westport Rotary Club at the Inn at Longshore some of the things he has learned about the district. The 4th CD has over the years elected representatives who are “independent thinking who voted the way they thought they should vote, not just along party lines,” he said. Part of the district’s uniqueness, he said, is that “the people in our district have a higher educational level—higher than most parts of the U.S.” It also has a different make-up than most districts because of the diversity of its population, Rose said.
